On September 17th, 2019, Troopers out of SP Jamestown arrested Sally Lawson, 62, of Bemus Point, for Obstructing Governmental Administration 2nd Degree, Resisting Arrest and Harassment 2nd Degree.

The Troopers responded to a residence in Bemus Point for a report of a disorderly subject. Investigation revealed that Lawson had driven past the caller’s residence yelling profanities, something she has done several times prior. The Troopers located Lawson and advised her that she was under arrest, at which time she became belligerent and began to physically resist being placed in handcuffs. Once in custody, Lawson was transported to SP Jamestown and subsequently to the Chautauqua County Jail, pending arraignment.
